Default Coffee Ground Fountain Pen

This is nothing compared to what a lot of y'all are making, but I'm pretty happy with my newbie results. Coffee grounds, dried and cast in Alumilite, and a PSI fountain pen kit in chrome.

It smelled strongly of coffee while I was making it, but it's odorless after the CA finish. Not really an option to leave it unsealed, though.

Excellent Pen Cory,
You should be Justly Proud,
Beautiful Blank, Well Turned, Great Fit and Finish.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
